Lucy Ives


How I want to grow up not to
Leave it
The fit

In my life, even the airplane

I didn’t want to start if I had to
  understand each part of the release
If there were names for where we
  put our faces

Does that sound like I like this

Do I sound like this

And if you knew where you were
Going, what
Would you be doing?

Ask me how I feel

Lucy Ives is the author of a chapbook, My Thousand Novel (Cosa Nostra Editions, 2009), and a full-length collection, Anamnesis (Slope Editions, 2010). Five years of collages are here.
